Unemployed New Yorkers look through the help wanted ads at the Department of Labor field office in midtown Manhattan in New York City.

Another disappointing report from the Labor Department shows that only 115,000 new jobs were created in April. But there are at least a few glimmers of hope in the report, and in other economic indicators.

Heidi Moore, New York bureau chief for Marketplace, joins the show to read the economic tea leaves.
